E. M. Forster
A Passage to India has a third-person omniscient narrator who provides authoritative insight regarding the background and minds of the characters.
A Passage to India is written in the past tense.
The title refers to American poet Walt Whitman's poem "A Passage to India." This allusion provides a contrast between Whitman's romantic view of colonization and Forster's darker view of the racism and suppression that often accompanies it as he traces the voyage of Adela Quested from England to India.
